to mitt romney. what is he like these days? >> in the last week or two he has found a focus for his campaign which he didn't have before. newt campaigning in iowa and new hampshire, he rambled and wandered. but for the last couple of weeks he's zeroed in on gas prices. it is the new new new newt, the gasoline newt, i guess with can -- we can call him. he's focused his campaign on that one issue. and because of that he's been able to give us some speech that's nearly identical, something he hasn't been able to do so fash -- far. and he's zeroing in on that one issue. it's like he can't help himself, sometimes he does go on the attack and he's done it a handful of times in the past week but it's not a consistent thing. we don't see the kind of attacks we saw in south carolina where he was going after romney. he's trying to focus on a singular issue. >> even then, he's run 30-minute spots now in some states. he actually bought 30-minute blocks of time where he sits in front of the camera. >> how many people sat through that? >> right. 30 minutes of newt looking at the camera explaining
involved and then followed by the person who can win. >> who do you think that? >> romney has the institutional support. i thought santorum would maintain his momentum. but this recent conversation about pornography, i don't know how long that's going to sustain him. it's not going to get me to vote for a person. there are a few bigger fish to fry and we need a candidate that is able to respond. we have the two-year anniversary of obamacare and the supreme court about to start arguments on individual mandate. this is what we should be talking about, if a republican is going to repeal this and replace it, that's what santorum and romney would be out talking about. >> we are talking about issues related to female voters. here's how you can answer questions. >> if you want to send an email or twitter, use one of those avenues as well. the release or the telegraphing of the paul ryan budget plan, is there anything that surprised you as far as the proposals? >> i'm not a tax expert and i haven't looked at the fine details, my understanding is that paul ryan is really putting out ad
chance of winning this race. the polls showed it to close to call. romney doing well in both states. you have the inside, they think it will be a split decision. >> we're hearing from a couple of people. it sounds like the alabama numbers -- there was an early wave that broke on drudge report. alabama is likely to go to santorum and romney is a close second. newt is not in for a good night. we will see if newt gingrich does not follow with a win. he put out to a very -- put out a very busy schedule. >> you are mentioning the website that dare not speak its name. the drudge report. the exit polls which often get leak don drudge and everyone who is a political journalist knows about capriotes that should come with those. they drive coverage in a big way. you can see it in the early coverage that the networks have. we watched you guys another -- the other day participating in the newscast. >> we appreciate it. >> the tone early in the evening was quite markedly different than the other. it is an interesting phenomenon. we're so starved for information early in the evening that we will build
live coverage. now mitt romney in an effort to secure delegates and wins in those two states. can we expect? guest: you can expect a pretty close finale here if you look at the polls. in alabama they had gingrich up with 21 points, romney with 20 and santorum at 17 on friday. actually we have seen polls in alabama over the past week in which all three of those candidates have had the lead at one point or another. romney looks like he is in a little better shape in mississippi. he had a seven-point lead in the last poll there. i am going to be interested in the impact of kansas because it is so class. the fact that santorum sort of ran away with it in the kansas caucuses. possibly if you are looking for any kind of a late-breaking thing, it could give him a little bit of a boost in those states. if there were any surprise this tuesday to look forward to, i think it might be another kind of santorum break-out like he had in tennessee or kansas. host: let's look at the results in kansas with rick santorum winning with about 15,000 votes in the caucuses over the weekend, 51%, to 21% for

-class that is at stake in the selection. mitt romney, rick santorum, newt gingrich, these guys have a fundamentally different economic philosophy than we do. our philosophy is one that values the workers and the success of a business. it values the middle-class for the success of our economy. simply stated, we are about promoting the private sector. they are about protecting the privileged sector. [applause] we are for a fair shot and a fair shake. they are about no rules, no risks, and no accountability. look, there is no clear example -- no clearer example of these two different views of the economy than how we reacted to the crisis of the automobile industry. it is sort of a cautionary tale of how they would run the government again and the economy again if given the chance. remember -- and you do remember -- and shelley, you captured it all -- remember what the headlines were saying when you woke up a couple of years ago. "it is bankruptcy time for gm." and other headliner "crunch times for chrysler." the government must act quickly to prevent the collapse of suppliers. for everyone of you , th

. if you look at governor romney's ratings when he left massachusetts, when you look at the size of senator santorum's defeat in pennsylvania, i worked in the georgette g.o.p. when there was no georgette gop. ike ran for congress in the middle of watergate. i took 16 years to create a national majority. i helped design the first capitol events in history. 1984 i designed a campaign that set a record, carried 49 states. in 1988 we were behind dukakis 19 points in may, and we designed a reagan-style campaign. -- george bush attacked the kind of massachusetts liberalism that to cut costs represented. we switched 25% of the country. in 1994 when nobody thought it possible we designed a contract campaign in which we went to the people on a positive basis, just as i've with this fall. i would offer paychecks credit and food stamps. i would offer the constitution. i would offer $2.50 gasoline. people want real choices. ok, now, this has been a hard race. when we jumped in in june, all the media said we were dead, and it is difficult to raise money when you are dead. we came back and by december we

a slut and prostitute, that's sad and wrong. but when mitt romney, the republican party's frontrunner for president, is asked about it and all he can say is, quote, it's not the language i would have used, then it's a leadership crisis. i guess mitt romney would have said she was a lady of the night. what he should have said is rush limbaugh, you're dead wrong. stop it. it's time for all americans to say enough is enough. and it's time for anyone who wants to be a leader even republicans who are terrified of rush limbaugh to stand up for treating every woman with decency and respect. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentleman from louisiana, mr. landry, for five minutes. mr. landry: ask unanimous consent to address the house for five minutes. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. landry: thank you, mr. speaker. it is with great sadness that i rise today as louisiana mourns the loss of another member of the greatest generation. yesterday evening mr. lewis me show -- michaud jr. passed away. he passed away at the ripe old age of 89. as i visited with his son t
policy that makes all latinos look like suspects and all immigrants look like criminals. mitt romney has said that the arizona anti-immigrant law, a law that essentially demants racial profiling of anyone who looks like they might be undocumented, is a model for our nation. but that's not all mitt romney has said to american latinos. he has said that all 11 million immigrants, most of them latinos, should self-deport even if they've lived here since they were children and have american citizen children families. he's even gone as far, mitt romney, to attack the first latino supreme court justice. he believes that justice sotomayor is unqualified to serve on the supreme court. he's proud of the support of anti-immigrant extremists, including the author of arizona's anti-immigrant law. he's attacked the dream act, a perfectly reasonable bill, and mitt romney's hardly a lone voice. it's sad. one member of this house said he would be for any measure to stop illegal immigrants, quote, short of shooting them, making hanging them. gassing them? one other colleague called undocumented immigrants
-- at least on the republican candidates i'd. >> as an adviser to governor romney, i think he has done an excellent job. [laughter] now, in fact, he has laid out a comprehensive, by far the most comprehensive approach to foreign policy. perrylawn white paper, given a big speech on the subject -- very long white paper, given a big speech on the subject. as is the nature of most primary campaigns, it has not been the topic du jour. you do not get a chance to lay out your vision of foreign policy when you are debating contraception and all the other important topics they are debating. the better time to ask this question will be in the general election, because then i think there will be a discussion about american foreign policy. i think there has been room for criticism of the obama administration. i know that one of the major approaches of governor romney, for instance, is that for quite some time in various parts of the world, president obama has not been great with a number of our allies. he is now, by the way, scrambling to repair that image. is meeting with david cameron is intende

revenues slightly. barack obama released a tax plan that does not lower rates. who is right, obama, romney, or democrats and republicans in the same room? >> this is washington, so i am right. [laughter] you have to recognize a couple of realities. we have had the income tax for almost 100 years, and you can count the reforms in less than one hand. we should not expect it. number 2, mr. romney and president obama are running for office. he should not listen to them. number three, it is true that tax reform is defined as raising revenue more efficiently, allowing growth more quickly, and right now i think the bulls- simpson commission -- the bow les-simpson commission reflects three things, we need to grow and we need a ruthless attention, and the oecd -- [unintelligible] number2, we were a lot about workers in the u.s. economy corporate income taxes. number three, we have a big debt problem, so you look at bowls since then -- bowles-simpson and pray that history gets this done. >> we will cover and not a ground and jump from issue to issue. the boomer generation will turn 65 in the next fe

romney's emigration advisor. so, when that came up we were talking to a reporter a politico and i figured we should just tell somebody because even though we did not make a point of naming this guy in the race, it kind of matters to he is now. we put a dot there and politico did an article about it. the guy had an opportunity to respond. this is the ad that ran in 2004. >> why are kansans turning from kobach? one even hired him. it's true. when hired him to file a frivolous lawsuits costing taxpayers thousands. kris kobach, wrong for mainstream kansans. >> i love seeing the tag line that the end. now when we do not see it, it bothers me. all bets are off with the super pac's. i would rather wrote of the questions that. -- i would rather open it up for questions. >> has there been candid if you have looked into and you have reported back saying the person is totally clean it? >> there have been two that we remember. everybody makes mistakes. the higher you go in elected office, the more opportunities you have and the more scrutiny will come under. it's not unusual that we find things on pe
ago, and in fact was put in place by governor romney who's going to be by all accounts the republican standard barrier. this is an example of congress at its worst. making up a problem, dealing with something that would help us do our job better, trying to deem onize it in a -- demonize it in a way you can virtually do with any other board or commission, ignoring the safeguards, ignoring the fact that the statute says specifically that it shall not ration, and instead they're willing to allow insurance companies to ration and ignore the need for reform. i strongly urge rejection of this misguided proposal. let's get back to work. let's do our job. it will never come in play if congress does its job and congress will always have the last say. thank you and i yield back. the chair: the gentleman from michigan, mr. camp, is recognized. mr. camp: thank you. thank you, madam chairman. i yield two minutes to the distinguished member of the ways and means committee, the gentlelady from kansas, ms. jenkins. the chair: the gentlelady is recognized for two minutes. ms. jenkins: the president's

these tough economic times. mitt romney told a nevada newspaper that he doesn't know what the purpose is of public lands. while in idaho presidential candidate rick santorum told a crowd that public lands in idaho should go back to the hands of the private sector. this theme is not new. in 2005 former chairman of the house committee on natural resources, proposed selling national parks to mining companies. today, as part of the ryan budget, it is proposing to sell off 3.3 million acres of public lands. most recently energy and commerce subcommittee chairman suggested selling off some of our national parks. we can't get through a meeting of the house committee on natural resources without someone from the majority suggesting that lands need to be transferred to the states or sold or fully developed for gas and oil. . my view and the view of most americans are completely different. as renowned documentary filmmaker ken burns put it, our national park system is america's best idea. our forests and desert lands represent what is best in america. a long-term view what we should protect and
. the ryan-romney republican budget ends medicare. aarp said the proposal lacks balance and jeopardizes the health and economic security of older americans. the budget we will consider this week fails to test the balance, fairness and shared responsibility. it showers the few americans that we are -- that are the very wealthy with an average tax cut of at least $150,000 while preserving giveaways to big oil companies and wall street c.e.o.'s. all these tax breaks would be paid for by ending medicare and cutting education, basic research and new sources of energy. obviously this budget rejects all of our american values. this is not the first time the other side has tried to end medicare. they tried it last year too. the american people rejected the ryan proposal then, and they will reject this latest attack on our middle class now. mr. speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentlelady from california rise? ms. chu: i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection,
